    The Simca (door on the right) was shared by two (presumably) brothers at a couple of Bathurst meetings. H van Schaik and J van Schaik were the
    two drivers, one ran in GT races (hence the 15K number, K designating GT
    class... also the paper number taped to the door, to change to the J
    number for the other races). Other French cars in the picture are the
    403, 29J, of K Watts, and Ken Brigden's 203, also running as Appendix K.

    Also... is this a Vedette to the right of the two early Ford V8 tow cars?
    Looks like a Vedette



    Renault:
    Is this a Fregate wagon at Warwick Farm?

    Default Simca and other Froggy classics.

    A big YES to both questions.
    A Simca Vedette Bieulieu on the right of the tow cars.
    A Renault Fregate "Domain" wagon. They came in a deluxe version, "Manoir".
    Highly unlikely any of the latter graced these shores.

    A nice series of photos. Thanks Ray and Bob.

    Default Simca And Other Froggy Pictures

    Hi Guys,

    Good to see those interesting pix, but sorry to spoil your guessing game. The car to the right of the two Ford tow trucks is a 1957 Studebaker which can be identified by the centre red lense in the rear tail lamp and of course the wrap round rear window. I think the sight of the flash on the rear guard may have thrown you.

    Great trip to Tassie but have come back sick as a dog.

    The Vedette that became a Studebaker? What confused me was the stylised
    "S" used by both makes. Only kidding.

    Isn't it just like "Panhard" to raise himself from his sickbed to put me right?

    Get well, JP.
